which book?

ok – so for those that know me – skip this paragraph – for those that don’t… I believe that any person can become whatever they want to be – I don’t think about gender.  I do realize that in most cases, men are stronger than women – but other than that – not so much!  Let’s just ignore all the emotional BS talk and just realize that even if SOME women express emotions more, let’s say, freely, than others – doesn’t not mean much – because there are plenty of women who don’t want to ‘talk about it’ all time or know what men are thinking, or blah blah blah… you get it.

So I am trying to figure out which one of my stories to finish writing…  main theme in all 4 books that I am choosing between? They all have very strong females in the lead roles… so here are the choices – obviously in blurb format…

1.  Female assassin (too much thoughts to blurb)

2.  Computer programmer on vacation recovering from trauma, gets surprise visitor – injured man brought home by dog… 🙂

3.  Young woman on beach saves little boy -later gets help in difficult situation – turns out boy’s father was mob boss…

4.  Young woman gets caught up in drug smuggling and arrested in South American country…

I know this is not a lot of info (obviously) – some of these are more developed than others…  any comments? suggestions?  if you read this – please vote!  I am going to finish all of these actually – just need to pick the first one!

Thanks! 🙂

Book Burning? WTF!!

Every burned book or house enlightens the world; every suppressed or expunged word reverberates through the earth from side to side. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.– Ray Douglas Bradbury

Wherever they burn books, they will also, in the end, burn people. –Heinrich Heine

I would say that I can’t believe that books were ever burned or banned ‘back in the day’ – but unfortunately that still happens today…. Completely unbelievable! – just don’t get it! I don’t mean this happens only in places like China and North Korea! This is still happening in the U.S.

My cousin is a lawyer and took a school district to court, because they had banned the Harry Potter books from the library…  He won of course… and as far as i know there weren’t any books burned – but still…

I could probably go on a diatribe about how burning books or suppressing thoughts, ideas, or words is ludicrous… But I won’t – will just sum up this thought with:

Don’t join the book burners. Don’t think you’re going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don’t be afraid to go in your library and read every book… Eisenhower
